EA's Real Racing 2, a game that we covered at launch back in December, is the self-proclaimed "most hotly anticipated racing game ever made for Android." It is also on sale (for a limited time) for just $0.99, 80% off its normal $4.99 price tag. The sale comes in celebration of the announcement of Real Racing 3, the next entry in EA's extremely well-crafted racing series.

The game, for those who aren't familiar, brings intense racing action to your Android device with over 40 miles of track in 15 different, equally immersive locations. The game has an interesting control scheme, allowing players to rely on touch or tilt controls to steer, and offering several customizations to "tailor to your personal driving style."

Real Racing 2 offers players the chance to work their way up - from rookie to pro - in Career mode, or simply enjoy a one-off Quick Race with "highly skilled" AI drivers. The game offers plenty of variety with 30 officially licensed cars and a number of different environments from speedways to city circuits.

      +1 It was really fun back on my iPhone 3GS, but it just force closes on my Galaxy S II.

    Compatibility list for my devices - it's not too bad, but not brilliant either. http://i.imgur.com/QIK79.jpg Better than I expected anyway

    • Himmat Singh

      Hah. It beats me that the game is compatible through the free trial version, but not the full one itself. Acer A510 btw, (Both US and worldwide versions don't work!)

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        So weird, Liam sees https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ea.game.realracing2_na(the free version) in the Play Store, and I don't - it's not found for me. Appbrain says it's deleted too.

        • krazyfrog

          They had a trial version but they removed that now. By the way, how does the game perform on the Nexus 7?

          • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

            I haven't played it. I don't really play games with all this running AP business :)

        • Himmat Singh

          No, indeed it seems like they pulled it out. I realized this since they put up the paid version. But via the direct URL to the free version, I can still go through (as of yesterday).

          Once I get back home I will try (it's in my Firefox browser) and post the direct URL. Even more surprising is that via the browser I managed to send the free version to my tablet and it installed a couple of days back. I did this for fun.

          • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

            That's the problem, according to Liam, who can see that url and I can't - this IS the free version you're talking about.

          • Himmat Singh

            Yea, I know that. Was just expanding. Anyway, the URL is this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ea.game.realracing2_row
            Sadly doesn't work anymore for me anymore. Probably the cache has been removed.

      Like I said above, the game was ALLOWED to be installed on my Galaxy S II but does it run and not force close? NO!

      I wish this game would work, it was great back in the day.

      Holy cow, you have a lot of devices.

    Is one racing game not enough?! :)
    How this game is special vs Asphalt, Hot Pursuit and the rest of the 1:1 on the market? :D

    • Himmat Singh

      This is a sim racer. The rest are arcade racers.

      • http://twitter.com/bat0nas Tomas Misevičius

        Sim racer on a phone LOL :))))

      • Stewart Higgins

        EA and simracer do not go together. And a sim on a phone/tab? Ha!

      This game was cool because it had the cockpit view and you would steer by tilting the accelerometer.

    • umk

      this doesn't encourage you to crash and it doesn't suck

  • KreeTerry

    I was gonna use the last of my $25 play store credit but it says its not available in my country. Bummed

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Are you clicking the right version? There are two - the one for Rest of the World should work for you (I think).

      • KreeTerry

        I got it, instead of using the widget in this article I just looked it upin the play store on my device and it installed easily. Thanks

  • br_hermon

    I bought EA's Need for Speed Shift back in December, anticipating playing it on my upcoming Galaxy Nexus. 8 months later and they STILL haven't updated the app and I'm still out my money. EA sucks and I have to seriously question if this is just another way to throw away your money.

  • StriderWhite

    if only it was available for Xperia Play...

  • Delroy Dennie

    i bought this a while ago for 99 cents waiting for an update because the download bar was stuck on my tab 10.1 then they release an update i try downloading again they make me pay 5 bucks last week now its 99 cents again WTF

  • Cheeseball

    I count two people in the threads here that cannot play it on the Galaxy S II. Is this problem with the GT-I9100 or with the other variants?

  • http://twitter.com/JarlSX Jarl Wijman

    not compatible with my One X or my Transformer (OG)?? but it is compatible with my kindle fire???

  • habib

    this game is still not compatible with htc one x.you are hopeless Ea games!
